Last 3 month sales value in Script

All Experts,

Need your help in calculating the last 3 full months sum in the script not in the front end.

There may be more than one transaction in a month and I want to sum all the previous three months(excluding the current month)

Sample data with the expected output attached for your kind reference

Any help would be much appreciated

Regards

Jeba

Try this.

Sum({<Cal_Date={">=$(=Num(MonthStart(AddMonths(Max(Cal_Date),-4)))) <=$(=Num(MonthEnd(AddMonths(Max(Cal_Date),-1))))"}>}Sales_Amount)

You can just use Monthend and MonthEnd for add or subtract month

Sum({<Cal_Date={">=$(=Num(MonthStart(Max(Cal_Date),-4))) <=$(=Num(MonthEnd(Max(Cal_Date),-1)))"}>}Sales_Amount)

Thanks - There may be a neater solution. I'd been on the look out for an intervalmatch challenge for a while .
